Making a complaint

​​​​​​​​​​​You can submit a complaint if you are unhappy with the standard of service that you have received from the Council, or if you are unhappy with something the Council or a member of staff has done or has failed to do.

​We expect customers to raise their complaint within six months (under Corporate Policy) or 12 months (under Social Services Policy) of becoming aware of the problem.

We will not investigate complaints received outside this timescale, unless there are exceptional circumstances. 

Have you told us about the issue?
